Tuekwey is not fighting ISIL.

They are helpig themselves. Jarablus is next door to Kobane.

Aleppo is doomed. Russian and its allies will take Aleppo in 6 to 9 months.

Jarablus is no that important to ISIl with Manbij in Rebel hands and Kobane in Kurdish hands. It was surrounded anyway.

By helping the rebels against ISIL this time, Turkey can loom good when the MSM is paying attention to Biden's visit.
